    Review of EXCUSE ME, YOUR LIFE IS WAITING by Lynn Grabhorn

    Hampton Roads Publishing Company, March 2003

    The subtitle of this book is "the astonishing power of feelings," and that is the main thrust. You can't just visualize what you want out of life. You can't just want it, believe in it, and wait for it to happen. You have to infuse your dreams with emotion--positive, fizzy, upbeat, happy emotions, not in a worrisome, fretful way.

    Grabhorn isn't the first to write at length about the Law of Attraction--which says in a nutshell that, in the energy world, like attracts like. So if you apply emotional energy to anything, you draw it to you. If you worry about something (getting sick, getting fired) you're more likely to cause it to happen. And if you passionately visualize the job you'd like to have, the mate you'd like to marry ... well, you get the idea. But I have to say, this is one of the most fun and readable volumes on the subject I've ever read. It's packed with examples, from the author's own life and those of people she's known.

    Grabhorn deals with issues of money, relationships, health and other hot-button topics, weaving together a theory that actually makes some sense--and she guarantees that if you take her advice, you'll see results. (I don't know that she's willing to refund the price of the book if you don't see results, but I have to admit, her enthusiasm and sincerity are infectious.

    Even if this book doesn't irrevocably change your life (and, hey, it hasn't been thirty days for me, so I can't offer a testimonial one way or another) it will make you feel better about things, at least for the time it takes you to finish reading.
